Great Baddow High School
Getting to and from Great Baddow High School
These routes and maps are suggestions of how you could stop taking the car and swap to cycling, walking, or scooting to school. They don’t show every possible route and you could have fun finding a way that works for you. If you know a safe way that gets you there even quicker, that’s great! Take that route instead.
Heavy traffic zone
The highlighted heavy traffic zone on the map shows the area that will have the heaviest traffic at school time. By using alternate routes and a mix of walking and cycling, you can avoid sitting in traffic and being late for school.
The housing estate next to the school has a good network of footpaths, giving quick access to the school. The school has access by footpaths and pavements on all sides and there’s a zebra crossing on Duffield Road right outside the main entrance. The Chelmsford cycle map also works for planning walking journeys.
Many of the short-cuts described for walkers work for cyclists too. The Chelmsford cycle map shows the best cycle routes both near the school and beyond.
Park & Ride
Park & Ride at Chelmsford could help you on your journey.
There are plenty of buses which connect the school with other parts of Great Baddow, as well as Galleywood on the edge of Chelmsford. A number of buses go right past the main entrance.
